ABOUT THE SUMMIT
The 2018 Monterey Cannabis Summit is the first conference of its kind on the Central Coast to bring together the knowledge and expertise of cannabis professionals and business and community partners in California’s fastest growing region in the cannabis industry.
The Summit is a two-day event featuring a cannabis tour for early registrants, featured keynote speakers, and five workshops delving into the most pressing cannabis issues facing the state and the region - "History of Cannabis in Monterey County", "Building California Brands", "Beyond Organics: Meeting California's Tough Regulations", "The Commerce of Cannabis: Investing and Raising Capital", and "Effective Partnerships to Counter the Black Market".
Andrew DeAngelo currently serves as a founding member of the board of directors for the California Cannabis Industry Association. He has been an activist in the cannabis reform movement for over 30 years. He also co-starred with his brother in the groundbreaking series, “Weed Wars,” on the Discovery Channel in 2011.
Known as the “Martha Stewart of Marijuana”, Cheryl Shuman built the largest cannabis media source in the world with Kush Magazine in 2010 as Director of Celebrity, Media & Public Relations, taking them from $150,000 in gross revenues to more than $6.5 million in revenue within 18 months. Cheryl is now the senior advisor of a $100 million funding facility to invest in the cannabis sector as well as personal endorsement contracts with ancillary products in the cannabis industry.
The 2018 Monterey Cannabis Summit will partner with, and directly follow, the Organic Grower Summit taking place in Monterey on December 12th and 13th. Launched by the Organic Produce Network (OPN) and California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), the Organic Grower Summit will bring organic growers, producers and processors to Monterey for two days of education, information and networking opportunities with their production supply chain and support service providers.
